The procedure is most commonly performed on women who are unhappy with the current appearance of the breasts for either personal motives or for medical reasons such as rebuilding the breast after a mastectomy.
Much like other forms of cosmetic surgery there are inherent risks that can arise if the procedure isn’t performed with due care and attention. Some of the most severe complications include:
- Infection of the implant
- Capsular contradiction, where the breast may feel hard and painful if an inappropriate implant has been embedded
- Developing a pocket of blood or fluid where the implant has been inserted
- Loss of sensation in the breast or surrounding tissue
- The shoulders becoming stiff
- The implant rupturing or deflating
- Unnecessary scarring
How Do I Know If I Have A Claim?
That’s easy really, just ask yourself these questions:
- Is your condition better now you’ve had your surgery?
- Did you experience any infection after your surgery?
- Do you believe that you have suffered more than you should have following your surgery?
If you’ve answered, ‘Yes’!’ to any of these questions, you may have a case for compensation.
It is unfortunate that the rise in the popularity of cosmetic procedures has led to a number of poorly trained, and unscrupulous, doctors passing themselves off as experienced cosmetic surgeons, when they are not. As would be expected, this has increased the number of surgeries that end up in disaster – from botched procedures to post-surgery infections! When this happens, the effects can be long-lasting and life-changing.

But, It’s My Fault for Having Cosmetic Surgery!
If you’ve chosen to have tummy tuck surgery and it’s gone wrong – you should not feel bad about claiming for compensation. Just because you chose something, it does not mean that you should be subjected to substandard treatment, whether you paid for the procedure privately or had the procedure carried out by the NHS.
